Review From TripAdvisor
Excellent hotel in the middle of town
This hotel was well located for anything in Sucre. One and a half blocks from the main Plaza. This is a lovely town, full of history. The whole hotel is full of atmosphere, antiques and period paintings. However, the hotel has all modern facilities, is clean, tidy and very well run. Reception received our boarding passes from our travel agent, printed them and delivered them to our room in about 10 mins total. Well done.
Maps, suggestions on things to see and where to go were all provided if we asked and all turned out to be very good Room was very nice, well lit, comfortable, large, TV OK. Bathroom was clean with plenty of hot water, towels and everything needed. Corridors and internal courtyards are delightful. Breakfast was pretty good and relaxed with a good choice of food and drink. There are no other meals available. Step outside and there are tons of places to eat a wild variety of things. Internet was free but slow at times. “
